Previewed at the Bristol Show Rega's new range topping moving coil cartridge the Aphelion 2 is now available. Taking the technology developed from the latest Apheta 3 to the highest level, Rega's engineers have now fine-tuned every aspect of the original designs. Aphelion 2 (£3,149) features an ultra-rigid boron rod cantilever fitted with our most advanced ‘fine line type’ nude diamond profile. Aphelion 2 uses a super high-powered neodymium magnet and a coil meticulously hand wound on an iron micro cross. The weight reduction of the generator is said to allow “greater freedom to track the vinyl groove ensuring even more detail is extracted from the vinyl”. The Aphelion 2 is housed within a single piece, aluminium black anodised body and protected by a CAD designed, distinctive yellow rigid cover to protect the internal fine wires, making handling whilst fitting, safe and risk free. The Aphelion 2 is the perfect partner for the Planar 10 turntable and will be supplied as standard on the ultimate Rega turntable the Naiad.
